of our foreign affairs committee, mr. duncan, who is here with us. in september, the house acted and passed the duncan bill overwhelmingly, and last week the senate further reiterated its strong bipartisan and bicameral support for the bill and the need to address iran's increased presence in the western hemisphere. in february, the committee on foreign affairs held a hearing entitled ahmadinejad's tour of tyrants and iran's agenda in the western hemisphere in order to examine the growing threat posed by iran and its proxies to the u.s. national security interests in the western hemisphere, a threat that first became evident 18 years ago with the deadly assault on the jewish community center in buenos aries. 18 years ago diplomats partnered with hezbollah, a foreign terrorist organization, to carry out the attack. since then, tehran has only increased its subversive actions as well as their diplomatic and economic relations with radical regimes in latin america. iran's ahmadinejad made two trips to latin america this year in an attempt to garner support from his fellow tyrants, t

of the presidency, he has used the good offices of secretary duncan and the attorney general to make sure we send a very clear message as a federal government that we are all in this together, that bullying is indeed not a rite of passage and as you said so correctly and so eloquently, superintendent, that kids can't learn if they don't feel safe. kids can't learn if they can't be themselves. kids can't learn if they are afraid to turn the corner for fear that somebody is going to hurt them. kids can't learn if they perceive that their teachers and administrators don't have their back when something happens. and that's why we're here. that's why we're together. because we're here to get off the dance floor for a day and on to the balcony, to reflect on what the best practices are, to listen and learn from each other and to do when end of the day, superintendent, i would respectfully submit, precisely what that kid asked you yesterday, to walk out of here and ask ourselves, what can we do differently and better? what did we learn? how can we apply evidence-based practices to the work that we do?
so that promises made are promises kept. and i assure you, as secretary duncan has said, that we significance vigorously ensure, we absolutely will take all your federal money because that is what we have the ability to do and no federal dollars on education should be spent in places that are come play e come play sent or don't step up, as the first lady says, to ensure that fundamental fairness. >> thank you to tom and ruslyn and thank you for reminding us why we are all here. thank you.
